    Thank you for your input, but since this is too generic statement, item is closed. We are evolving CSOM based on the specific requests and scenarios provided from customers and partners. We are releasing new version of CSOM NuGet packages on monthly basis for SharePoint Online and keep on adding missing scenarios as part of the releases.

    Server side object model for SharePoint is massive and there are numerous areas which provide APIs in the farm level. Since CSOM is also used in SharePoint Online, we cannot provide this level of API reach with the CSOM side.

    We are addressing gaps in the site and site collection level APIs based on your input, so would suggest to provide input on missing capabilities and to include also the actual business scenario why the API is needed. This helps on prioritizing these requests in the future.

  2. New SharePoint Certifications

    I work in the Real World with SharePoint 2013 daily. You could call me a "PowerUser" and "FrontEnd SharePoint Programmer" Can you PLEASE offer (Starting with SharePoint 2016) A "SharePoint Certification Path that will actually be worth something? In large corporations only a very, very few will be allowed to use PowerShell, and set up Site Collections, and design server farms... You need SharePoint Certifications for the person who uses it in the office daily a "power user cert", and you need some that certify you on programming SharePoint using (JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, BootStrap, etc...) for those of us…

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, this would not be however the right channel to provide feedback around the available certifications. Would suggest to provide this input to MS Learning by using different channels available from https://borntolearn.mslearn.net/. That way your input will reach the right audience.

  3. Deploy Radzen

    Is it posible to deploy to Sharepoint a http://www.radzen.com/ app likewise lightswitch used to? Radzen is a rapid application development solution for Angular 2.

  4. Need expansion of the number of characters that can be used in a REST Call from SharePoint Designer Call Action

    The number of characters available before the REST Call returns BadRequest is much too low. This is especially true when using SharePoint Designer Call action to copy a document from one library to another. Another option would be to configure the call for copyTo to use parameters so that the entire call is not required to be in one URL, instead the parameters could be added to a the parameter dictionary

  6. NAPA supporting ECMAScript 2015 or Typescript for both on- and off-premise programming of event receivers

    Present programming of Remote Event Receivers is complicated and limited so farm deployed server-side Event receivers are used. Support of ECMAScript 2015 or Typescript is needed in a simple freestanding tool (NAPA?) for both on- and off-premise installations.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. NAPA service is no longer supported and the models are moving more towards scenarios with web hooks and Azure functions.

  7. Worklflow 2013 should have MORE functionality than WF 2010

    8pproval Workflow functionality is limited. A ItemModertorStusChanged event reciver is missing. WF 2010 has more functionality and hence used instead of WF2013. Even with WF2010 it is tricky to get appovers names and dates into library columns. SharePoint Designer 2013 is unstable and may corrupt the system!

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. In SharePoint Online we are gradually moving towards Flow from the classic workflow scenarios. In on-premises workflow is absolutely supported and there should not be any corrupt issues. If that would be the case, it would be rather a bug than a new feature. We do understand the importance of the business processes support and are looking to further invest in this area also in future, but not using the classic concepts.

    Closing as this is not an enhancement. It’s a potential issue in existing capability and reporting these in UserVoice is not the right way to get things sorted out.

  9. Not intuitive AT ALL. WHy so many steps to publish!?!!!

    Scrap the whole program and think through how to set up the functionality of Sharepoint. All I'm trying to do us publish my site and it is unnecessarily complicated. Nothing is intuitive, would take a month to tell you everything. Scrap all the code and rebuild the entire program from scratch...so it makes sense. Remove all of the "Overthinkers" from program engineering staff (have them work on something else). To many redundant, over thought out processes that make simple processes too complicated. I feel like I am forced to look through 10 drawers of beautifully detailed knives and I desperately…

  10. Reverting to modern theme

    Hi,

    I changed a team site them to classic in SharePoint Online. I cannot find a way to revert back to modern look, I'm currently stuck with the classic look.

    This is actually a security feature in the browsers which are blocking mixing https and http requests on the same page and we cannot solve that for you in SharePoint side.

  14. ItemModertorStatusChanged event receiver

    ItemUpdated event receiver is a very rough async process that blocks SharePoint functionality heavily. It can't be empty since workflows communicate with SharePoint using it. My Suggestion is to introduce a ItemModertorStatusChanged event receiver. To obtain backwards comptibility, it should be a tick box when creating a workflow in SharePoint Designer to use ItemUpdated or ItemModertorStatusChanged event receiver.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. Your suggestion does make sense but would require changes across multiple areas, where we are not currently planning to invest.

  15. Scrap "client side web parts". You can do all this with normal javascript so why complicate it?

    Scrap client side web parts are just HTML and JavaScript but require the developer to install configure and use a whole suite of old hat wannabe command line software. This is a step back to the ancient art of command line cryptic development. Really, even notepad more advance then this.

    We do acknowledge that moving from classic JavaScript development to more structural industry standard patterns require some changes in your development process, but we absolutely want to standardize and move SharePoint development models aligned with what other platforms do. This changes might feel huge and even step backward, but it’s highly beneficial for the larger customizations. With the SPFx and client-side web parts you also get centralized control and governance, which is not there with random embedded JavaScript models like with Script Editor web part. We absolutely understand your feedback, but looking into adoption numbers (metrics of usage) of the SPFx, there’s really no reasons for us to turn back from this journey which we started a few years back.

  16. It should be possible to "save teamsite as a template"

    To save a site as a template used to be so easy! But now you need to be a developer to do this for modern teamsites or communication sites! Why??

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now.

    Classic save site as a template capability was designed in away which is no longer valid implementation style in the cloud.

    We are in a journey with the Site Designs and Site Scripts potentially provide end user driven export capabilities, which could be used to achieve similar outcome, but we are not planning to provide classic “Save site as a template” capability in the modern SharePoint sites.

  17. Make the name of the current Composed Look a property of the Web object

    Currently there is no simple way to pro grammatically get/set the current Composed Look for a site. The Composed Looks list available from the Site Settings page shows all the looks available, but the only way to determine which one of them is the current one is to tediously compare every item in the list to the one with the name "current", which is inefficient and error prone because if there is a background image as part of the Composed Look, the value in the background image field is changed when the look is chosen by the user so the…

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. This would absolutely help on the programmatic handling of the site configuration, but we are not currently looking to invest in this area of the branding elements.
